Oklahoma Tornado: March 26, 2017

I caught this tornado about five miles east of Ada, Oklahoma this evening. This storm chase was interesting, as it took a while for storms to mature and they struggled with only marginal boundary level moisture. There was a last-minute surge around sunset, as dew-points nudged to around 60 degrees in south-central Oklahoma.

Prior to the tornado above, a funnel cloud and possible tornado was also sighted about three miles east of Ada, Oklahoma.

This severe weather season continues at an above average pace, as 2017 has been a very active year so far. This may continue, as another chase day is possible on Tuesday, March 28th.
